Terry helped launch the Community Development Council of Quinte; is a past-president of the Belleville YMCA; and has served as Director of Social Services for Hastings County.
One of Terry’s favourite phrases is: “Because everyone matters.”
As an elected representative and as a senior manager, he is well known for his fairness, his accountability, and his ability to bring residents together to build solutions.
